Glitz March Blog Challenge...

I'm loving the new challenges that Glitz Designs are offering up every month. The beauty of them, is that they are not all the same - sometimes it's an inspiration photo, other times a colour combination, or like this month - using a specific product. For March, the challenge is to use "Paper Layers" on your layout, card, or off-the-page project.

Don't ask me what's with the orange layout - I can't answer that. It's just the way it turned out, lol! It had a mind of its own. Titled: New Beginnings.
I loved the opportunity to use paper layers, but I wanted to be a little more creative then just using them as background layers. I contemplated making flowers out of the paper layers, but flowers hold much better when the paper is thicker and sturdier. Plus the paper really needs to be double-sided, which the paper-layers are not. So, I looked for another alternative, and came up with paper rolls used as a decoration (and tied together with a big, bright bow).

Here's a close-up of my paper rolls. And hand-made flowers. :-)
